CIAC PARTICIPATES IN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE DEDICATED TO TERMINOLOGY
Today (October 22), CIAC researcher Maria de Fátima Noronha attended the 4th edition of the International Conference on Terminology, promoted by the Terminology Centre of the Lithuanian Language Institute. Under the theme “Scientific, Administrative and Educational Dimensions of Terminology”, the conference took place in a mixed format (face-to-face in Vilnius (Lithuania) and online).
Maria de Fátima Noronha presented the paper “Diastratic Variation and Specialised Discourse Typology: The Case of Mediterranean Diet”. It was proposed a different perspective on the concept of “specialist” and a revision of the typology of specialized discourse. The aim is to contribute to a more efficient analysis of specialized corpora and a clearer understanding of diastric variation in terminological resources, which can help communication mediators to make a more appropriate decision according to their target audience.
